The Balm Schwing Black Liquid Eyeliner Review

Friday, December 12, 2014

Every time I use this eyeliner, I break out in song! "It don't mean a thing (If it ain't got that Swing Schwing)" ~ Duke Ellington (covered by many great musical artists). Well, let's talk baseball & liquid eyeliner! Batter Up! It's The Balm's Schwing Black Liquid Eyeliner ($17). First Base. Super cute packaging, with a baseball theme and ladies' looking at a baseball player's butt! I hate baseball, but the players DO have nice bodies. Oh I digress. Second Base. Schwing has a fabulous felt tip! You can make the thinnest of the thinnest lines, the thickest of the thickest lines OR anything in between. Third Base. It takes less than a minute to dry and RUB RUB RUB your eyes until you can't rub them any more (see my gift), this eyeliner will NOT COME OFF! Homerun? Unfortunately there's one Strike Out! Let's change songs here. "You better not pout. You better not CRY!" Good ole Kimmy is about to tell you WHY! If water hits this eyeliner in ANY kind of way, you will look BAD! Like UGLY CRY bad! I put this eyeliner on my hand, then put my hand under the faucet and black stuff went down the drain. It didn't stain my hand. It rolled off, so it's easily wipeable. So you can't cry if you use this stuff. Don't wear this in high humidity. Don't run a marathon with it. If you're PMS'ing, skip it (LOL). Don't wear it to funerals or weddings. What did I miss? LOL You get the point! I have an extra one. If you would like it, just enter via Rafflecopter below. Not responsible for any adverse health, skin or mental conditions while using this product ;) I was REALLY conflicted when grading this eyeliner! It's excellent. It's just not, nor claims to be waterproof! Because it doesn't claim it, I'll go with SWEET. There's just that one issue. Have a HOMERUN weekend everybody! I'll announce all winners for this week Monday.

You made me laugh Kim! I dont know if would be good on me as I have the tears easy!^^' But the packaging is so beautiful and fun! When I saw the image first before reading the title, I thought it was a lip balm instead of an eyeliner lol!:) Have a wonderful weekend my friend, many kisses! xo

I am currently using an eye-liner from Avon but it definitely is not my favourite! Would love to win that and try it!

Hi Kim,
I love the packaging too and I love anything vintage. I used to wear liquid eyeliner but tend to wear a black or brown crayon eyeliner.
Wishing you a wonderful day and weekend.

This review totally made me LOL Kim! This eyeliner sounds great except for the non- waterproof factor. I actually like baseball but I don't think baseball players are much to look at haha ;p

Shireen L. Platt said...

You seriously gave me a good chuckle, Kim! Love the post and yay to another giveaway! My favourite eyeliner has to be Maybelline HyperSharp, it worked best for me so far. Btw, I don't like baseball, the game is so slow that it puts me to sleep and those hot bodies can't keep me awake either. LOL!

Interesting product (love the packaging too!)
it does not come off when you rub, but it does if you get your eyes wet…. so it's a very tough and sentimental product i'd say ;)

Ashley said...

I've always wanted to try this! I've heard it's really good. Too bad it's not water proof!!! At least we know it's easy to get off haha!!

Coco said...

I love how you used all kinds of baseball idioms in this post...I've always found them fascinating...perhaps because we don't have them here. Baseball is not that hot in Europe.

I never noticed the bodies of baseball players (I never saw a real game of it ...only saw it in films) but I've noticed that handball players are very handsome. Probably the reason why I went to so many matches to see them play:)

Anyhow, this eyeliner looks promising and I've joined in the giveaway...thanks for hosting it!

too bad that it's not waterproof. I need something waterproof for sure, because once the humidity hits, I always look like I did the ugly cry or I've melted, lol! I've tossed many eyeliners out because of that.
It sure has nice packaging though! Thanks for the thorough review!

Great Review! The Packaging looks super cute :)

Alicia Mackin said...

Well it is good that you can run your eyes, I have a habit of doing that and try not to. B/C I will look like a racoon by the end of the day so this is good!

Lol to you breaking out in song! You're too funny Kim! The packaging is so cute. Since it's not waterproof, it's probably easy to remove. Great review and have a great weekend!

Cee said...

Ha ha Kim, your posts always crack me up - and of course they're informative, too :) This eyeliner sounds fabulous.
xox,

Kim, you always find the cutest stuff! You don't like baseball? I like playing it but I haven't been to a real baseball game, but on tv, it looks boring. Lol. Have a great weekend doll!

I usually use pencil eyeliner (love Sephora's one) but this liquid one sounds great! Love that you can get it thin or thick!

Mica T said...

It sounds great Kim! Just such a shame that it isn't waterproof!

Bonus that it stays on when you rub your eyes though! I don't ware anything on my eyes to work as I've done that before and when I rubbed my eyes in the middle of a long day at the computer...well it was not pretty haha!
